The boulders are substantial, landings are good (with a mat) and the rock is hard with lots of friction. This is very pleasant place for an evening or short day. The bouldering is spread over three large and three smaller boulders and is mostly in the lower grades, with sit-down starts and lip traverses providing most of the entertainment.
